Korea’s subway is extremely efficient, inexpensive and clean, if crowded. Still I’d recommend visitors to Seoul use cabs instead; they’re almost as inexpensive as the subway and you see a lot more of Seoul.
There are a LOT of TVs in the subway. In Seoul for that matter. It seems like no matter where you go in Seoul there is a TV somewhere broadcasting. Definitely added to the entire “Blade Runner” feel of the place.
Some more subway scenes:
The kids in the subway tended to move in tight clumps, even when there was plenty of room.
Here’s a guy on rollerblades and a suit. You laugh, but after a day on the subway he made a lot of sense to me!
Public restrooms: free. Toilet paper for restroom: not free. (Thus the vending machine.)
I was thirsty, but not that thirsty.
